    I think he should.

    His personal failings are very similar to Newt's and it turns out that such things don't matter to Republicans.

    You mean if he lives?

    Did John Edwards lie about his affair? Did Newt? Did John Edwards convince his friend to lie and admit the little love child was his? Did John Edwards care about the humiliation experienced by the friend's wife? Who did Newt blame for his affair.

    If there is a comparison, it's that when Republicans have a moral failing, they don't lie about it or blame someone else. This ALONE puts Newt head and shoulders above democrats.

    True..Newt blamed his affair on his patriotism.

    I wonder what he blames his bigotry and racism on? Are those "qualities" patriotic as well?

    Newt Gingrich lied about his affairs every time he took marriage vows.

    I love this rightwing stupidity. Adultery is ok if you're not on record lying about it.
